Cupid and Psyche is a contemporary comedy adapted from the ancient mythological story. When the goddess Aphrodite has her mojo stolen by the most beautiful woman in the world, Psyche, she begins to age, and decides to, er, eliminate the problem. She calls on her son, Cupid, to destroy the princess but he hits a snag when he does what he has never done before — falls in love with Psyche himself. What ensues is a zany and exciting game of love and sacrifice worthy of the gods. Alex Lippard directs.
